Debian Security Advisory DSA 1259-1                                   Moritz Muehlenhoff

Package        : fetchmail
Vulnerability  : programming error
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-5867

Isaac Wilcox discovered that fetchmail, a popular mail retrieval and
forwarding utility, insufficiently enforces encryption of connections,
which might lead to information disclosure.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 6.2.5-12sarge5.

For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) this problem has been
fixed in version 6.3.6~rc5-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 6.3.6~rc5-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your fetchmail package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
